Reds To Install Additional Netting

To Be Completed By 2018 Opening Day

The Cincinnati Reds plan to install additional netting at Great American Ball Park for the 2018 season, extending new netting to the end of each dugout and replacing the existing netting behind home plate.

The Reds' ongoing commitment to providing the best ballpark experience includes maintaining the safety and security of our fans.

The expanded netting will be installed during the offseason and will be in place by Opening Day 2018, when the Reds take on the Washington Nationals at 4:10 p.m. ET.

The existing netting meets Major League Baseball's recommended guidelines, and the new netting will go beyond the standards established by the Commissioner's Office. 

Further information will be available upon installation.
